Ross McCormack completed his move from Fulham to Aston Villa yesterday, as HITC revealed earlier this week.

The Scottish striker is expected to start their first game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday, and his arrival should have given the whole club a lift.

Midfield ace Jack Grealish was quick to welcome McCormack's arrival, using Twitter to express his delight at the club's acquisition.

Grealish endured a miserable season last year, on the losing side in every Premier League match he played, and will be hoping for considerably more success this time around.

McCormack's signing solidifies Aston Villa's status as promotion contenders, along with fellow relegated sides Newcastle United and Norwich City.

The striker netted 21 times for a struggling Fulham side last season and Villa will be hoping he can push 30 goals.

Grealish has a chance to have big say in helping him to it, and his own assist tally could look quite healthy by the end of the campaign if the pair hit it off.
